Enjoy Peace and Quiet at Cyprus Country Holidays - rural Cyprus at its best! - Terrace Apartment

Overview

Property

Updated: 11-Oct-2016
Apartments in Vavla, Larnaca, Cyprus - Come and Stay with us in the Real Cyprus

Located in the eastern foothills of the Troodos Mountains, our apartments offer value for money holiday accommodation but with all the modern conveniences you would expect of somewhere more expensive. Relax by the pool, laze in a hammock among the olive trees or read a book on the terrace, Cyprus Country Holidays is all about unwinding and recharging. After a day of exploring – Larnaca and Nicosia are 40 minutes away and Limassol a mere 30 – what could be nicer than coming back to your own space, picking a lemon to add to your gin and tonic and enjoying the cool evening air. If you time it right you could be serenaded as the breeze carries the sound of the local nuns singing.

If you are interested in making an enquiry please use the 'enquire now' link just below the green 'Book Now' button to the right. We can give you an accurate quote for the rental period you want as the Owners Direct quote system can result in some inaccurate pricing. We will also be able to answer any questions you may have about the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Simon and Marion…

“This is such a great place to enjoy walking and cycling.”

We have bikes that you can borrow if you would like and the area is criss-crossed with tracks to explore.



Norman and Rachel...

“Those eggs taste like real eggs should.”

You can help yourself to some freshly laid eggs – once tasted you will not want to return to supermarket eggs again!



Steve and Christine...

“Just the type of break we needed. We can go back to work having had a complete change of scenery”

Beautiful villa in hills

  • 5 of 5

We've had a lovely home-from-home break, just what we were looking for. Wonderful weather, lovely apartment, delightful hosts Shane and Neal, friendly neighbours, great pool and estate. We loved relaxing on our outside table and chairs, morning and evening.

We visited the usual places; Nicosia old town, Limasol, Larnaka... all within easy access. One highlight was Fikadou in the hills, seeing the abandoned homes, the Turkish flag on the far mountainside, learning some history of how that came about.

Our first Cyprus holiday, a perfect stay, we would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write down your thoughts on your recent visit with us. The name of the game with lots of our visitors is to relax and unwind with the odd bit of sightseeing thrown in for good measure, so we are glad you felt able to do the same. At this time of year sitting outside, especially in the evenings, is one of my favourite occupations. The cooler evening air, the sound of crickets chirping and just gazing at the night sky has a totally relaxing feel. If you do head over to Cyprus another time we would love to see you both again!

A haven of peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, restful week staying in the Garden Apartment. Neal and Shane are excellent hosts, who made us so welcome. There was a much-appreciated welcome pack of the basics (bread, cheese, milk, freshly laid eggs, wine etc) waiting for us on arrival. The apartment is clean, modern and really well-equipped and in a beautiful, peaceful location. We loved collecting freshly-laid eggs for our breakfast. The pool area is large, with a lovely shaded BBQ area where we enjoyed long, lazy lunches. We dined out most evenings at some very good local restaurants, all within a short drive of the villa. A perfect week of rest and relaxation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments about your recent holiday with us. We are glad you enjoyed your time in Vavla and felt suitably rested and relaxed. Lots of people like getting the eggs from the hens - they really do taste and look so much better than an 'ordinary' egg. We try to provide everything you would want while you are on holiday... from towels to toasters, crockery to candles, we think we have it all covered. Thanks for staying and look forward to seeing you all if you should ever visit Cyprus again.

Perfect get away for the stressed

  • 5 of 5

We had the refreshing enjoyable two weeks holiday that we needed. A beautiful environment in the hills. Lovely views, comfortable spacious apartments thoughtfully and generously furnished. Well maintained flower terrace with trees and gazebos around a spotless pool. Olive grove with chickens producing eggs daily and salad veg. Within reach of great Cypriot sites of interest. Welcoming and helpful staff. plenty of helpful information available whenever needed.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Glad you had a relaxing time - it's one of the things that lots of visitors comment on enjoying when they come to visit. The chickens are certainly producing more than enough eggs for your boiled eggs and soldiers in the morning. In fact, as you know, sometimes they produce too many! Look forward to seeing you again the next time you decide to visit Cyprus.

Another 5 star stay

  • 5 of 5

This our second visit to the property and we were greeted like old friends. The hosts are very accommodating and really try to make your stay relaxed and memorable. They also know when to give the guest private time.

The studio apartment was spotless and the kitchen has just about every gadget you would need to cook for oneself. The unit is spacious with lots of nice design touches, including funky green lighting from the showerhead!

This is the kind of place that guests come back to year after year, as their guestbook attests. We have already joined the group.

The property is perfect for those who want to relax, enjoy the mountain scenery, take a hike, bike ride, or visit the major tourist attractions which are less than one hour away.

Owner's Response: Thanks once again for coming to visit and leaving a review - it really is much appreciated. I am glad you feel you are 'part of the gang' as we certainly think of you both as someone who is welcome to come back anytime. Lots of people do enjoy relaxing and lazing round the pool but we are also centrally located which does mean that you can get to most places quite easily if you want to be energetic. Hoping to see you again.

Very Friendly Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a quiet place to stay; sitting on the terrace beside the lemon and olive grove was a treat. We are bird watchers and there was plenty to watch from the terrace. Shane found us a BBQ and charcoal. The studio apartment is very tastefully furnished and the kitchen is very well equipped.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time Joanne and David. I am sat outside now as I type this watching the swallows circle around the pool - there is always something to watch. Our current visitors are just prepping the barbecue as it is going to be a lovely evening by the looks of it - I think Summer has arrived!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Larnaca at 40 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A1 at 10 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Platanos at 7 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

We are about 20 minutes drive from popular tourist beaches. Travel another 5 minutes or so and you can find some 'off the beaten track' gems that you will probably have all to yourself.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Larnaca (LCA) which is around 35 minutes drive away. If you want to arrive at Pafos (PFO) you can expect a journey time of about 1 hour 10 minutes. If you want to do nothing but laze around we can pick you up from the airport but if you want to go off and explore a little (and there is so much to see and do in Cyprus) we strongly recommend renting a car. We really are in the country so, just like the UK, there is very little public transport.

Distances:

We are centrally placed to go off and discover Cyprus. In 10 – 15 minutes you can be on the motorway that runs along the southern coast. Lefkara, a well known tourist spot famous for its lace making, is 10 minutes away or go and look at the Neolithic settlement at Choirokitia – 15 minutes drive away.

Further Details:

We want you to enjoy your holiday with us and as such will always endeavour to do that little bit extra. Please talk to us if you have special requirements, if you would like us to get your shopping done ready for when you arrive or just want to get a feel for what we offer.
